Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

The Funeral Service for Tyler was held at the Cathedral of St. Philip on Wednesday, September 22 at 3:00 PM.
Tyler was laid to rest with full military honors in Arlington National Cemetery at 3 o'clock, September 28, 2004. He received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and the Combat Infantryman Badge. Tyler also received special recognition from the "Old Guard" where he had been selected to continue his military career.
The "Old Guard," one of the oldest and most respected Infantry Regiments in the United States Army, has the awesome responsibility of both guarding the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, but also for escorting deceased Army service members to their final rest in the "Gardens of Stone," as Arlington is sometimes called.
The "Old Guard" also serves as the Army's ceremonial unit and, as an active and well-trained Infantry Regiment, is responsible for the protection of Washington, D.C.
General Ponder was the presiding officer over Tyler's burial service.
